Initial Security Camera Placement on B Side

  • With the addition of B side, we now have 4 more entrances to our building.
  • We should (at minimum, until we have more property over there) have those covered by our security camera system.
Amend the list of approved security cameras to include:
  • A camera covering the B Side front door in the office area
  • A camera in the B Side warehouse watching the side (courtyard) and garage doors.
  • A camera in the B Side warehouse watching the rear door.

Board and Membership Communication

The board is seeking suggestions on improved methods of communication with members! Specifically, we are looking for:

  • Quick, informal ways for members to get questions about space operation answered
  • Methods for members to suggest changes/improvements to the space ensuring the entire board has a chance to evaluate them and the member who suggested the change gets feedback about their idea

Please give us your input and suggestions! They can either be sent to @carpenma or board@i3detroit.org. We look forward to hearing your ideas on improving the space!
